Events will include food, face paint, tours of the facility, and of course the opportunity to meet and adopt our wonderful animals. We are undergoing a physical facelift thanks to donated materials and volunteer labor!  The painting party in fact starts this Saturday, April 3rd. Please call 507-334-7117  if you would like to offer your time and talents.

Also, we are conducting a membership drive starting in April. We will be changing to once a year renewals and all members will be contacted by mail. A new opportunity is a sustaining membership. Monthly donations given automatically through a bank account or credit card receive a thank you gift; best of all, members may choose the amount of their sustaining gift.

Please join us at our open house and consider a sustaining membership.
